Elevators in the 1920s

I have a story taking place in the 1920s. I'm trying to find out when they switched from elevator doors you could look out of (iron grilles/wooden slats and the like) to one you can't see out of, like most modern elevators. I Googled "elevators" and found a lot of interesting information, including the wikipedia article about elevators, but didn't find what I was looking for. Help please? Thanks in advance!

Edit: I suppose I should have been more clear. I have a scene where one character arrives in a steampunk sort of space elevator (and so *needs* to be sealed), I was just asking the above question to try to figure out how surprised his friend should be upon seeing a sealed elevator. Trying to figure out if a sealed, modern-type elevator door would make the friend be puzzled at first or not.
